My name is Laz, a medical massage therapist. I had worked for 5 years in a chiropractor’s office where I treated over 1,000 patients a year with disc herniation, frozen shoulder, thoracic outlet syndrome, whiplash accident injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome lateral/medial epicondylitis and many more. I am also an experienced deep tissue, sport, Swedish, myofascial manipulation and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.



I have graduated from NOVA Medical Massage Therapy School where I studied anatomy, physiology and kinesiology for 5 years. I have done my extensive final case study about sciatic pain management and lumbar disc herniation. In addition to that I took a Registered Nurse course for 4 semesters at Germanna College, furthermore was an instructor of medical massage practical application, anatomy, pathology and patient assessment in Columbia College.



I have a great reputation from Washington, D.C. to Richmond, getting referrals from chiropractors, physical therapists, doctor’s offices and hospitals. I rehabilitate patients after an injury and those who suffer in chronic pain. I also improve the performance of athletes and prevent future injury.



I also have over 10 years of experience of training competitive athletes.

He is one of a kind!

Laz was great. After explaining my trouble he was dead on with exactly what was happening to me. A day later after he “beat me up” I feel achy as expected but far more loose than I’ve felt in months. Incredibly professional yet funny and entertaining. Looking forward to going back.

Magic hands! Thorough and expert massage therapist.

I must like every aspect of all these massages I've gotten as I am on my 3rd 10 session package of back / spinal / hip massages with Laz. And have no inclination to stop these packages anytime soon.

He fixes all my aces and pains every time. He’s just awesome. Found the source of a pain I had in my side for months and got rid of it after nothing else worked I had seen my Doc about it multiple times who only wanted to run test and treat with drugs and none of what the doc gave me helped. Laz found the location of the injury in my chest and got rid of it with deep tissue massage. Was an area that very difficult to stretch or work yourself. He really a master at what he does.
